Senator FINDLEY - The answers to the honorable senator's questions are -

1.   Yes.

2.   No. The position was not created in Class D, as no available applicant had the necessary experience justifying the grading in the higher class.

3.   The duties of the position which was proposed to be created in the higher class will not be defined until the time arrives when circum- 1 stances will warrant the creation of the position, therefore, no comparison can be made. The salary allotted to a position of the kind is dependent upon the experience and merit of the officer.

4.   Answered by 3.

5.   No ; for the reason that none of the applicants available was considered qualified by training and experience for the proposed new position, and there was, therefore, no need to hold an examination to determine what was already obvious.

6.   No. He has been performing work in ac cordance with his classification.

7.   Yes. Mr. Bean has given satisfaction, and it is probable that with additional experience he will be fitted to take the higher position in the Department. The Chief Electrical Engineer has reported that Mr. Bean has given similar satisfaction to that which would be required of an officer in the higher class. This does not necessarily mean that he is worth ^310, and the Public Service Commissioner considers he is at present adequately paid.

8.   There has not been any necessity, as the nature of his work is known.

9.   No. If Mr. Bean continues to perform his duties efficiently, he will, in accordance with the promise already given, receive advancement commensurate with the riper experience he will gain.
